Monte Cristo Bites

New Year's Eve wasn't really a very exciting holiday for us, but because it was a holiday I wanted to at least cook something as if we were partying. Pinterest seriously has all of the answers. I found these Miniature Monte Cristos and knew that they needed to be made. I wasn't to excited about using evaporated milk for the batter because I didn't need to make very much and didn't want to waste half of can of milk. So I looked around the internet for fried french toast recipes that used bisquick and got an idea of what to do.  The result was delicious! I only made 4 slices of bread worth of these since I was cooking for two people. The amount of batter I made was way more that I needed and probably could have covered 10 slices of bread worth of bites at least. I also didn't want to be wasteful with the crust I trimmed off of the bread. I saved it to make croutons.


Monte Cristo Bites
  • White Sandwich bread
  • Thinly slice fully cooked ham
  • Thinly slice fully cooked turkey
  • Thin sliced Swiss chees
  • mustard (I used spicy brown)
  • 3/4 cup Bisquick Mix (Any dry pancake mix should work)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon.

Trim crust off of bread and flatten each slice of bread with a rolling pin. Spread mustard on bread. Top each slice of bread with 1 slice of cheese, 1 slice of ham, and 1 slice of turkey. (We found it was easiest to roll if the cheese was closest to the bread.)Roll up bread tightly. Wrap very tightly in plastic wrap to assure even log shape. Chill for 30 minutes. Mix together baking mix, eggs, milk, and cinnamon.Heat  1 1/2-inches oil in deep-fryer or deep saucepan to 375°F. Unwrap each roll from the plastic wrap and secure with 4 wooden picks. With serrated knife, slice each roll into 4 pieces, securing each with a wooden pick. Dip each piece in batter, allowing some batter to be absorbed. Fry a few pieces at a time in hot oil for 1 to 2 minutes or until deep golden brown, turning frequently. Serve with spicy brown mustard or jam for dipping.

  28. I just made these tonight for a family dinner. I was a bit skeptical being Cuban, and all expecting Rice and Beans, but They were Super Easy to make and VERY Good... They all DEVOURED them. I used a Rasberry Jam to dip the Monte Cristo Balls, and they were a HIT! I have already been warned that I had to bring these to the next dinner! Thanks for sharing!

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
